priority in the house. we believe the revenue generated from eliminating these carve-outs should be used to lower rates around the board, but will lowering tax rates create a stronger american middle class, a morrow bust economy? fans of history, facts, and economic data question the merits of trickle down economics. since ronald reagan took office, the government has eased the tax burden on the wealthiest americans. the result of three decades of tax cutting, according to a cbo report that republicans tried desperately to kill, "there is not conclusive evidence to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year steady reduction in the top tax rates and economic growth." so what is the legacy of the last three decades? staggering income disparity. the average household income has skyrocketed for the top 1% far outpacing the modest gains by the bottom 99%. in 2010 93% of income gains went to the top 1%. in 2011 the average .01%er made $23 million. that same year the average member of the bottom 90% made $30,000. according to the washington post given the gaping difference in income,

the obama strategy and uses his gimlet eye to talk about it. since the collapse of the grand bargain talks in summer 2011, obama has become a far more cynical and politically successful operator. what the president is doing with his repeated public emphasis on the sequester is laying the groundwork. >> the president has got a big megaphone, a much bigger megaphone than john boehner, eric cantor, mitch mcconnell, anyone on the republican side, and he's going to go out there on the daily basis, he's going to stand with police officers, teachers, he's going to go to the pentagon and talk with people, perhaps, going to be furloughed. they are going to furlough 700,000 people. he's going to do local tv hits today around the country, and john boehner gets a "wall street journal" editorial, which is really just speaking to his base. the president is speaking to the american people, making the case these cuts are bad for them, and the republicans really are not in a position to respond effectively. when you're in the congressional wing of the party, democrats or republicans, you're not able to eff

. >> but is that the new republican prescription for what ails us? >> i guess. i guess. i mean, keep it in perspective. the -- a lot of the things a president can do. his action is limited in a lot of these spheres. for example, in giving benefits to same-sex partners. there's a defense of marriage act, and that's -- so that's congress's domain. they get to say what is and what isn't, but the president does have some latitude, and, look, every congress complains about every president overreaching and being a dictator. >> maybe it seems like he is overreaching, jared, because they're not doing anything. >> right. >> it's kind of like there is no leway for not to be an overreaching, sfwler sum game. >> mode of operating is inaction, so action looks very suspicious. i thought that was a peculiar kind of quote because clearly if we were clues cruising along at full employment and everything was fine, perhaps inaction would be a reasonable path. we're not. we have lots of problems in this country, and immigration, guns, and the economy. let me say one thing about the economy. the kind of things we're going
